After reviewing my images from last year, I felt that, having been quite busy with commercial assignments, I didn’t go out shooting for myself much, particularly in the UAE. I really want to correct that this year as I always felt that the only way to progress my photography was by shooting for myself without the added pressure of client briefs and client changes. I also felt like I didn’t really go camping much so that’s another thing I would like to rectify this year. Although there has been a bit of a setback with our rooftop tent – the cover had a tear in it and some water got inside, getting everything moldy – I will try to get it into working condition as soon as possible and plan for some more trips.
So in the spirit of getting out more, yesterday I spent the night in the Empty Quarter, enjoying the silence the sand dunes are offering and hiking up and down these monsters to find interesting vantage points like this one.Technical details | Aperture: ƒ/8 | Camera: GFX 50S | Focal length: 45.7mm | ISO: 100 | Shutter speed: 1/180s
